I suppose someone ought to speak up for the Saturday morning TV contingent. I spent a lot of time watching Roy Rogers, King of the Cowboys, suitably accompanied by Dale Evans (Queen of the West, obviously), Trigger, Bullet, Pat Brady, a Jeep, etc. Everybody got into the act on this one. Of course,if you were looking for something a little more modern but still with that good ol' western flavor, there was the always entertaining Arizonan, Sky King. He was a southwestern rancher whose Bovine interests always played second fiddle to helping the local sheriff round up all manner of varmints ans weasels, marching them off to the local hoosegow. In keeping with the times, Sky shunned the typical and traditionally faithful hay burner of yore, opting instead for a sleek, Cessna 310B, the Songbird. This enabled him to head the vermin off at the pass faster than a horse ever could. He was often assisted by his accident prone and gullible, niece and nephew, a mixed blessing if ever there was one. Without fail, the criminal element was conveniently dispatched within twenty-two minutes, the rest of the allotted half hour slot given over to brainwashing the youthful audience, courtesy of the folks at Nabisco. Very effective advertising. To this day, I can't leave an Oreo unmolested. Sadly, Kirby Grant, the actor who played Sky King and a great sponsor of children's charities, was killed in a car crash. He was on his way to Cape Canaveral where he was to be honored by the astronauts (who were fans) and watch their launch in the shuttle, Challenger.
